AMG Project ONE, carbon fibre to reduce the overall weight

The new boat’s deck is constructed completely of composites that are also used for the inner structural laminate of the hull

Designed from the ground up using the latest technology and methodologies, the Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE was inspired by the highly anticipated Mercedes-AMG Project ONE supersports car.

Representing the ninth special edition boat created from this partnership between Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing, the 515 Project ONE is 51’ 5” in length and features an increased beam of 9’ 6” which allows 6 passengers the ability to be seated comfortably.

The new boat offers an increase of over 30% greater surface area when compared to the existing 50’ Marauder, while still providing similar performance and an impressive 140 mph top speed through the use of a highly optimized composite structure consisting of carbon-fiber, Kevlar® and E-glass.

Cigarette’s signature aggressive shoulders, which rise in the rear of the boat, also allow the integration of a large sun cushion on the flat exposed-weave carbon fiber hatch - despite the tall engines beneath - for maximum comfort and versatility when stationary.

The boat’s deck is constructed completely of carbon fiber to reduce the total weight and lower the center mass of the boat.

Carbon Fiber is also used for the inner structural laminate of the hull, forward bulkheads, cabin liner, engine hatch, consoles and storage hatches to significantly reduce the overall weight.

For example, the air intakes, which are over 7ft long and 14inches wide, weigh only 4.4lbs. Overall, the weight optimized Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE is over ten feet longer than the Cigarette Racing 41’ SD GT3 but it weighs over 5,000-lbs less. Kevlar® has also been used for tabbing bulkheads and around the edges of framing for its extreme toughness properties.
